About Startup Day

Knoxville and East Tennessee have a rich tradition of innovation, entrepreneurship and successful startups. It’s true. Wouldn’t you like to hear their stories and meet the new generation of business leaders in our community?

Jon Shieber, senior editor of TechCrunch and CrunchBase, will join us as master of ceremonies for Startup Day 2014 and help us celebrate our startup and entrepreneurial community.

Startup Day 2014 brings together businesses and entrepreneurs looking for the next big idea, investors and Angels looking for new startup opportunities, businesses offering services to startups and small businesses, regional accelerators, research institutions and East Tennesseans interested in learning what all the excitement is about.

This year’s event features fireside chats with Knoxville’s legendary entrepreneurs and PechaKucha style, quick-fire pitches from ten Knoxville startups.  The event will end with a happy hour, music and lots of networking.

Startup Day is open to everyone! If you’re passionate about economic growth and the future of our community, please come and show your support!
